KAMLOOPS — Every team in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League wishes it was the Kimberley Dynamiters.
 
A Kimberley man is donating $7.5 million from a lottery win to the East Kootenay city's junior "B" hockey team and minor hockey.

Mike Gould says he wants part of his donation to go to the Kimberley Dynamiters of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League,  to the regions fledgling triple-A team and to Kimberley's minor hockey association.

One of the junior "B" teams first priorities will be to buy a new bus.
 
38-year old Gould, who has two sons playing hockey in Kimberley, says he won a 2008 jackpot in a lottery.
